I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I trained as an integrative counsellor which means adopting different techniques or approaches depending on the client’s needs.
We are all unique human beings and I think it’s important to work flexibly and with integrity so that each client feels they are getting the most out of their sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked at Cruse Bereavement Care, the Margaret Jackson Centre and Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services. I am experienced in working alongside survivors of sexual violence and in working with trauma.
As a bereavement volunteer at Cruse I supported clients who had experienced traumatic losses. As a specialist support worker at Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services I delivered direct, trauma informed specialist support to women and young men who had experienced sexual violence with a focus on the ability to cope and recover from the effects of sexual violence.

- Attachment disorder
- Binge-eating disorder

Sessions are an hour in length and I find that clients get the most out of it if they commit to weekly sessions.
My hourly rate is £40.
I appreciate that you may feel nervous going to see a counsellor, so my main aim is that you feel relaxed and at ease. It’s important that you are listened to with compassion, respect and acceptance. And we all benefit from having someone trust in us.
I offer an introductory free session for 30 minutes so we get a chance to meet each other and see if we feel comfortable working together. There is no charge for this session and no obligation.
